Head compression.: Typically, the fetal heart rate decreases episodically with contractions during the pushing stage of labor as the fetal head is compressed and rapidly descends in the birth canal.

Other causes: cord compression, placental failure can also occur. ...Read more

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

If you run a bit higher comfortably, don't worry. As you excercise more your heart rate may drop as you get more fit. Still, you don't have to go that hard to get benefits. Be well! ...Read more
